Ingredients (makes 12 muffins)

60g protein powder (I used MyProtein Cookies and Cream flavour)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
140g rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
2 medium ripe bananas (approx. 200g)
4 medium egg whites
120g unsweetened apple sauce
140g 0% Fat Total Greek Yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

Preheat the oven to 180ºC and spray a 12-hole muffin tin with non-stick spray or lightly grease with coconut oil.

In a bowl mix together the protein powder, cinnamon, oats and baking powder.

In a separate bowl use a fork to mash the bananas. Now add the egg whites, apple sauce, Greek yoghurt and vanilla extract and mix together. Now add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a spatular to fold the mixture together until fully combined.

Divide the mixture evenly between the baking tin holes and bake in the centre of the oven for 12 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.

Best served warm, with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of all-natural nut butter (try Meridians new Coconut & Peanut Butter … it’s delicious!)
